Celebrating 10 Years of Service

Hand from Closing Event

Healthy Beginnings: “We’ve made tremendous progress in the last 10 years and that is due in large part to NCBDDD & their partners.” – Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA)

We celebrated 10 Years of Service in 2011, and honored that decade of progress by showcasing the exceptional work of our partners’ and the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD). Partners worked with us to offer a series of events and activities throughout the year and to highlight our collective successes. We gained valuable insights on the future strategic direction of the Center through focused, meaningful discussions with our partners and are so grateful for their presence, support, and their hand in making the past a success and the future a land of possibilities.

Many of NCBDDD’s advancements and innovations in public health programs are due to the contributions of groundbreaking experts in the field, who have paved the way to more promising public health prevention and intervention programs. The year-long celebration was an opportunity to honor the pioneering spirit of the health professionals and advocates who support the Center’s mission and to empower today’s generation to continue efforts toward potential for full and productive living for our most vulnerable populations.
